Update, 10:12: Sox win 8-3. And Ellsbury catches the final out to tie the putout record with 12. I'm gonna make it so those PawSox pics post automatically around noon tomorrow since I won't be near a computer all day. Remember to watch for me in the front row in dead center, in my gray jersey. (Thursday night.)
Do you feel that?
That's the weight of the world being lifted off of David Ortiz' shoulders...
The Red Sox took an 8-0 lead over the Blue Jays with four ding dongs in the 5th inning, but the real story was Big Papi's first homer of the 2009 season.
